“The things of the world become translated into that which supports your ever-increasing joy, success, fun, pleasure, material improvement and new friends. It supports all of it when you see through the eyes of Love. Then you literally look at the world around you and finally get that it was never what you thought it was because you failed to separate yourself from God.
“Everything you see is there to support your happy experience. You are free to live in your highest joy, to ask for what you want, and to open the heart and love. And the universe will respond according to the beliefs you hold about yourself, within yourself.” “The Way of Knowing,” in Way of Mastery
We need to have a fresh understanding of ourselves by seeing ourselves through the eyes of our own precious love. This is not selfish. This is not egoic. As God’s children, we are precious in His eyes. Are we not dishonoring our Father Himself when we drag ourselves down with self-esteem issues?
When we focus on the positive in this beautiful world, we see only the beauty. The ugliness fades, though we can always say a little prayer that our brothers and sisters also live in a better world. When we believe that we are really OK, through and through, the universe responds with that better vision. The book, I’m OK, You’re OK, says it all in the title. When we realize that we, and our fellow men and women, are created in the image of God, we know that our debased self-image has to be given up.
We get what we believe on the inside. Belief creates the world that we see, including supporting our place in this world.
When we form a new attitude that invites joy, we will experience this joy.
And we will never want to return to any lesser way of experiencing life.
